Gavin Smith

Nose
Old-fashioned sticking plasters, herrings in a barrel.
Palate
Lively, brine and limes, backed by delicate peat-reek.
Finish
Lengthy and increasingly salty, with cereal 'new make' notes lingering.
Comment
A drinkable, if relatively undemanding whisky. Perhaps a good introduction to Islay.

Dave Broom

Nose
Hugely smoky. Jalapeno peppers, kippers, soot. Becomes fragrant and increasingly medicinal.
Palate
Balancing biscuity/salted crackers crispness. Burning dry leaves, smoked fish. Ointment (Savlon) in taste and texture.
Finish
Quite perfumed, fragrant smoke. Scallop.
Comment
Reekie certainly, but auld? Good fun.
